Vacancies - Independent Custody Visitors
Independent Custody Visitors (Volunteers) for
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), Humberside
Would you like to make unannounced visits to police custody to monitor the welfare of people in detention?
Our valued independent custody visitors are volunteers from local communities who reside within the Humberside Police area of the East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull, North East Lincolnshire and North Lincolnshire. Our volunteers check on conditions in custody suites, speak to detainees in police cells about their treatment and follow up any concerns raised in relation to detainee welfare and treatment.
Our custody visiting scheme is independent of the police and anyone aged 18 years and above may apply, providing that they are not employed by, or related to those employed by the police, OPCC, magistrates or solicitors (to prevent conflict of interest). You must live or work in the Humberside Police area.
Travel expenses are reimbursed and training is provided.
The closing date for these vacancies is Friday 10th December 2021 at midnight.
All posts of the OPCC are subject to police vetting.
